Remember that bike ride? Yeah, it didn’t happen for me. Instead I worked on a software bug (not entirely my own) until past 8:00pm. My buddy ITP-Reader John (aka “HamWithCam”) got a ride in however; good on ya!
I considered working out a ride today, but logistics and laziness beat me into submission this morning.
It Must Have Gotten Much Easier To Start A Brewery
My consolation prize for not getting to ride (though shame on me, I should have just gone out for a ride around work) was heading to Taco Mac to see one of my favorite waitresses. As I passed Outback I peeked through its window to see if my boss was inside (probably not for the reason you’re thinking). I didn’t see him.
While in Taco Mac I found that they were serving beer from one of Georgia’s newest breweries
Jailhouse Monday Night Red Hare Brewing, which is in Marietta. You know that I looked to see if it has been started by hashers, but I can find no indication of this. Having never heard of this brewery I sampled both of beers their beers which were on tap — the Gangway IPA, and the Long Day Lager. Not being a fan of lagers I went for the IPA. The beer was decent, not great, and seemed to suffer from a lack of carbonation. They’re new, I’ll give them a shot again sometime soon. Some ITP-Reading Marietta residents may want to see about pairing a brewery tour with a Tasty China night in a couple of weeks, I mean, come on, look where the brewery is located:

Hell, my schedule is so jam-packed over the next six weeks I probably should be the one to organize the outing if I want it to occur on one of my scant open dates.
While eating last night’s “Odd Choice of Food for a Meal”â„¢ (sweet potato fries with chives, tomatoes, bacon bits, and bleu cheese dressing — could I be pregnant?) I saw a tweet informing me that my boss was indeed in Outback; I apparently just didn’t see him. So I finished up my food and joined him there for a beer before heading home.
If The Letters PBKDF2 Mean Something To You Then You Know On What I’m Working
If you think my normal (abnormal) iOS babble is boring, then don’t read up on PBKDF2 — an encryption algorithm I’ll be dealing with today.
George’s Tonight, Come Hell Or High Water
I’ll be at George’s Bar tonight. I’ll be the rotund fellow wearing the black shorts, probably eating some sort of potato product for dinner. I’ll try not to wear a scowl, or spout nonsensical iOS babble that will put you all to sleep.
See me there.
